We have expected our politicians to be true to their party’s basic line however not to the extent of fanaticism. Every voter has their own take on what is proper and correct however many times these opinions do not reflect the real effect of enacting or acting on these opinions for the country as a whole. In any give and take there no winners or losers  if done properly with that said why are we still electing and re electing the same people to misrepresent us in Congress? Our Congress to quote a statement From Wikipedia:
The phrase “speaks with a forked tongue” means to say one thing and mean another or, to be hypocritical, or act in a duplicitous manner. In the longstanding tradition of many Native American tribes, “speaking with a forked tongue” has meant lying, and a person was no longer considered worthy of trust, once he had been shown to “speak with a forked tongue”. This phrase was also adopted by Americans around the time of the Revolution, and may be found in abundant references from the early 19th century — often reporting on American officers who sought to convince the tribal leaders with whom they negotiated that they “spoke with a straight and not with a forked tongue” (as for example, President Andrew Jackson told the Creek Nation in 1829[16]) According to one 1859 account, the native proverb that the “white man spoke with a forked tongue” originated as a result of the French tactic of the 1690s, in their war with the Iroquois, of inviting their enemies to attend a Peace Conference, only to be slaughtered or captured.”

It should be clear that our Congress (save a few )do not have the interest of their constituents in mind unless it serves them personally (or make big donations to their campaigns). This current political era (1945-2016) has brought us “McCarthyism” where there was a Red or communist behind every door and ruining may live in the process, the Watergate scandal where a sitting President had to resign and the attempted impeachment of a sitting President for lying to Congress. Now we have a political a party that helped elect a person unfit to be President just to get their personal agendas passed while allowing their constituencies to go with little or no quality health care, air quality regulations to be rolled back and abetted in the passing of a predatory tax “reform” which gives nothing to the least of us. In the wings is a movement to tinker with your Social Security earnings to offset the  deficit created by the “tax Reform”. These are the issues that too many of us either do not know about or possibly care about but readily accept the blatant falsehoods emanating from the White House and Congress with impunity. We are currently in the middle of a struggle between correct governance and malfeasance in governance and we (voters) are the agents of change.
